My diabetic doctor left and now I am without one. Currently my internal medicine doctor who is up to date on diabetes and other stuff currently treats me. Does anyone know of a good doctor. I am a type 2 diabetic and I live in Capitol Heights, MD.

Thanks

A couple years ago I left the Endo doc because I felt I was dumping money down the drain. My new internist is up to date, and he treats me. He just found that I've been overdosing myself for about five years and took away what the Endo doc had me take in insulin. In the last 3 weeks I've lost 7 pounds of the 50 I had gained since using insulin. In a meal I might take 45 units of Humalog, now the same food I take 5 units.

My internist is a good doctor and is also up to date on everything. He is treating me right now and I feel really confortable. I guess I just thought that the endo doctor would be better but may not. I am currently on Victoza which I take once a day. I did ask my doctor about it and he says it is not insulin but medicine but in the form of a needle but it's got my diabetes under control.

Did you Google Health Centers "Capital Heights, MD"? I did and found a list. You can also Google Angie's List. You can contact your local hospital to see if the have a community health center and to give you that number. I could give you all kinds of health centers in Baltimore City where I live.

With all kinds of health center and hospital's in MD you almost have to work hard to not find a doctor.
